Building Bridges: Music and Cultural Diplomacy between the United States and Cuba

Ordway Cultural Conversation

Presented by the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts and hosted by Intermedia Arts

The Ordway’s musical performances by Nachito Herrera and the Creole Choir of Cuba serve as catalysts for learning about music and cultural diplomacy between the United States and Cuba. Artists from the U.S. and Cuba have collaborated on many musical genres from son and salsa to jazz, rock, folk and rap. Although the U.S. embargo against Cuba severed, it did not suspend musical collaborations between nations, and many artists found unique ways to transcend political boundaries.

Engage in a lecture, panel discussion and audience conversation contextualizing the “Raíces y Sueños: the Artistry of Cuba” series in the larger national and international landscape of US-Cuba relations and bringing to the forefront how music has served to build bridges between two nations that have not had diplomatic relations for over half a century.

Cultural Conversation led by Dr. Melisa Rivière alongside panelists Gloria Rivera, Cuban singer/songwriter; Yrak Saenz a.k.a. Vitalicio, Pioneer Cuban rapper; and Doug Little, composer and performer of Cuban music.
